    Grandparents And Special Person Day

    Nurturing Bonds at our Independent Primary School


    We recently celebrated a heartwarming and memorable event, Grandparents and Special Person Day, here at Castle Park School. Over three days, our Independent School community came together here at our school in Dalkey, Co. Dublin, to honour and appreciate the significant role that grandparents and other special individuals play in the lives of our pupils.

    This blog post will take you on a journey through the highlights of this special occasion, showcasing the joy, connection, and cherished memories created in our Early Years Department and Private Primary School settings.


    Honouring Family Bonds and Connections

    Through this event, we celebrated the love and support of grandparents and special individuals, recognising their unique role in our pupils’ lives. In addition, we aimed to foster intergenerational connections and emphasise the values of family and community that define our private primary school.

    Building Bridges Across Generations

    During Grandparents and Special Person Day, meaningful connections were created between our pupils and their special guests, fostering a strong sense of belonging and community. These interactions help bridge the generation gap and highlight the nurturing environment in our independent educational approach.


    A Time for Appreciation and Gratitude in an Independent Primary School

    With their expertise and dedication, our in-house catering team prepared delicious meals that our guests and pupils enjoyed throughout the three-day event. The visiting grandparents and special persons joined us for a delicious meal, sharing stories and experiences with our pupils.
